  • Love hearing and seeing the history of this beautiful ship. Well maintained and great staff aboard. A must to see. 
  • It was an okay visit - we just walked as part of the Freedom Trail but could have been missed. Also could not find a bathroom!! 
  • It is amazing to see the USS Constitution up close. When I was there, repairs to the ship were under way and tourists were not allowed on board. There is an on site museum that was very informative ab...  more »

  • Any time you have a chance to board a vessel that's got the amount of history this boat does, you should do it. Especially when it's free. The museum accepts donations in lieu of an entrance fee, but the hole place was really neat for young and old alike. Definitely recommend.
  • The USS Constitution or Old Ironsides is a bit of floating history. The oldest still commissioned war ships in the world, she represents the pride, legacy and tradition of The United States Of America. She now serves as a fantastic teaching vessel and classroom. A maritime museum is built adjacent to her permanent berth.
  • Must see for all Americans. Although the ship was under major renovation, with scaffolding all up the sides, being on the ship immediately transports you back in time. My whole family enjoyed being on the top deck and the deck below. Fantastic end to the Freedom Trail odyssey.
  • This was a wonderful museum with a ton of information and fun things for kids to do. All run by donations so do your part.
  • Free and neat to explore. Make sure to not have any weapons or other prohibited items on your body as you do have to go though a security check point prior to boarding the ship. Much of the ship is open for you to walk around including lower levels. The guides on the boat provide interesting stories about life aboard the vessel and make you feel like you were there. Great Boston stop!
